Eona: The Last Dragoneye - Alison Goodman Eona is a hard book for me to review. Not only am I completely new to audio, Eona was such an epic conclusion to the Dragoneye series and a week after finishing I am still have trouble sorting my thoughts and feelings on the book.

My love for Eona that carried over from Eon dwindled slowly throughout the book. Eona’s lies became like a cancer slowly eating away at me. She rarely does the right thing or make the right decision and she uses her friends to justify her own cruel lies. However, you can say she does it all to try to survive but who doesn’t or can’t trust Kygo our prince?

Eona’s relationship with Ido the constant love vs. hate struggle interests me to no end, and in the final chapters of the book when she is forced to pick between Ido’s selfish love or Kygo’s chauvinistic brand it really is hard for the reader to know Eona’s mind enough to predict an ending. Eona is after all a very unreliable character.

The book is violent and bloody with equal parts of action and downtime. Nancy Wu did such an AMAZING job with the narration of this book. I am not sure I would have finished it on paper. It’s long, and in the years it took Goodman to finish the sequel it seems like most of the characters had changed into a different being. I didn’t feel like I was picking up where we left of in Eon even though that is the exact point you pick up.

This doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the book, or love the ending because I did, so very much. It just means Goodman and Wu both did an excellent job conveying the contemplation of the characters and still after a week I am contemplating their actions as well.
